2002 toytota camry left front makes noise turning right


This is usually a bad bearing. The tire is tilting to one side and causing uneven wear. The shimmy is because of the slack in the bearing and the contact the front rotor is having with the brake pad. Every time the low side comes around the rotor will hit the brake pad and grab it.

You will need bearings and brake work.

Uneven cupping or wear on the inside of front tires.I believe its toe setting. you set the toe on 2006 trail blazer 4/4 (HOW) ?raje


Cupping and uneven wear are for two different reasons. Cupping is caused by either an unbalanced tire/rim or bad shock. Uneven wear can be an alignment issue. I don't know how to set the toe in.

Dronning sound, increases with speed. sounds almost like stuck in third gear but does not go away when coasting in nuetral


Check wheel bearings, most likely front 1 or both. get up to speed and take some corners, if it quits down when turning right, the front right wheel bearing is bad. If you turn left and it quiets down, then its the left front thats bad(important to maintain 30-50 mph). They are sold as the whole hub. Also check your front tires, run your hand across the inside and outside edge and see if they are worn uneven, this can make a lot of noise if the tires are bad. if thats the case, have someone check the ball joints and tie rods, if they are bad, it will do that to the tires, thus the unevenly worn tires making a paddling noise effect.

Replaced front drivers tire, rotated tires. The car starts shking at 30 miles an hour. What do I need to do?


Rotated and changed tire????changed tires then rotated? well see if this helps.....Check If the Manufacturer Specs on your driver side door. Make sure you have the right tire size and tire pressure. Inspect tires for lumps or uneven wear. NEXT check for a bent or warped rim, Missing weights if they have been balanced(balance if not already done) IF shaking happens in acceleration continue checking if the tires you kept are not worn out on the inside or if your wheel bearings are worn out. (If it happens when braking check your rotors) hopefully its not a bigger deal.

When i hit the brakes or go over 60 miles the wheels will start to shake


It sounds like you may have more than one problem here. First I would investigate Front End Alignment and ALL Steering/Suspension components for excessive wear and/or looseness. Second I would Inspect the Brake Rotors and Pads for uneven wear. Third I would check the Tires for uneven wear and balance. Many things can cause these symptoms: Worn out Ball Joints, defective Shock Absorbers/Struts. Worn out Tie Rod Ends, Idler Arm, even the Steering Gear Box can be part of the problem. Brake Rotors and Tires can be out of Balance with either one causing the problem over 60 MPH. I strongly suggest having your vehicle inspected by an ASE Certified Front End and Brake specialist immediately. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with these symptoms.

I have a 2002 jeep wrangler that seems to start shaking at 60mph below or over ok. It is not major but noticeable. Where do I start looking? Thanks Dan


Grab hold off the prop-shaft to see if it is quite solid, it could be a worn UJ. Check the balance weight on the same shaft to ensure it hasn't slipped forward or backwards on the shaft.
Then get wheels checked, they could need re-balancing.

Noise in transfer case plus uneven tire size


Sound's like you might have damaged the transfer case due to differant tire size.The differant tire size causes uneven rotation inside the case and it will damage it.Take to tranny shop and have them check out.

'03 Merc Mountaineer humming noise when turning


If same tires as before & air pressure set correctly, or as usual, a humming when swerving, or turning one way or the other or both, it's usually a pretty good indicator.
